What Grades Do You Give to a First Grader?

This rural teacher says his head is about to explode.

The state says he has to give test after test after test to his first graders.

Then he�has to convert those scores�into a letter grade.

This doesn’t make any sense to him.

The children are just beginning to make sense of letters and words.

How can he reduce what they have learned to an A or a B or a C or….?

Does this make any sense?

Is it developmentally appropriate?

Do they do this at the University of Chicago Lab School or Sidwell Friends?”
